Ohio Labor Report Shows Low Unemployment Numbers

Lima, OH (WIMA) - In relation to the recent Labor Day holiday, a new report found Ohio had low unemployment numbers last year and slightly higher wages for the 2nd year in a row.

The research puts forth recommendations that think-tank executive director Amy Hanauer says will help even the playing field for workers like higher minimum wage, better access to collective bargaining, and deeper investments in childcare.

She adds that investments in infrastructure, green energy, and higher education can also help better position Ohio for the future.
